Snack Time With The Evil Geeks

Lunchboxes were a rite of passage growing up and the Evil Geeks got together to discuss their most memorable. Many heated debates were spurred over these around the lunch table, so don’t forget to weigh in and tell us what yours was.

Biff Tannen Nintendo-Power-Lunch-Box

I loved this fucking thing. It’s the only lunchbox I ever remember having. I’m still strangely proud of owning this. Shit, I’ll rep Super Mario 2 until the day I die. Not to mention, you already know my feelings on Zelda 2. So this was a gift from the heavens for me. What’s a little strange is that it’s actually promoting the Super Mario Brothers: Super Show, which I was a big fan of. You know, the one that had a Zelda cartoon on Fridays!? Yet, that’s what Mario and Luigi looked like on the show, but not Link and that insane Hyrulian knight he’s fighting. To top it off too it’s being presented by Nintendo Power in conjunction with some company called Aladdin? That’s all kinds of weird. It seems like they are trying to capitalize on the show without actually saying that that’s what it is. Good move Nintendo, I wouldn’t want to give Viacom and a company named DiC any more money either.

A Glimpse Into Phil Noto’s Artwork

I’ve recently become fascinated by Phil Noto’s art. Not only is it strangely beautiful, but it also has a particular design atheistic that is very appealing to me. A lot of his work feels like it would be equally at home in a high end fashion magazine as well as a comic book. While his current day job sees him doing interior’s for Marvel’s Black Widow series with writer Nathan Edmonson here is a sampling of what else he’s done.

The Evil Geeks Top 5 Rob Liefeld Covers

Liefeld Week, a never ending holiday of macho men, bad ass babes and weapons the world just isn’t ready for. We’ve discussed a great many things but there was nothing we were more excited for than to pick our top 5 favorite covers delivered from the master’s hand. It wasn’t easy to narrow it down, but somehow we did it.

Rob, we kid because we love! Here’s the thing, I don’t actually hate Liefeld’s art. I know it’s awful and he doesn’t have a child’s grasp on the anatomy of the human body, but I have some fun nostalgia from my childhood about it. With that said, I know it’s bad and I wouldn’t ever willingly buy anything he’s done. He’s already made a mint off me as a kid from trying to piece together the entire Extreme Studios line of comics he was behind for Image in the early 90’s. I’ll be showcasing here some of what Liefeld does best and other things that are considered the most Liefeldian.

5.) Youngblood #77 (March 2013)

This is the newest entry on my list (the only one that isn’t from his 90’s heyday) and a bit of a curveball. Believe it or not, I actually legitimately like this. I have no idea what’s going on though. Looks like Chapel is back from the dead (Again!) as a demon though this time? That minion behind him looks disturbing and menacing enough and dare I say that Badrock even seems to be slightly more proportionate?

Evil Geek Archaeology: The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks and the Lost Treasure of Hasbro

 

Greetings Evil Geeks!  Recently, we’ve been doing a little digging around the Evil Lair and we’ve managed to turn up some exciting artifacts.  To say that the Evil Lair is an ancient and mysterious place would be selling short the strangeness of the ancestral home of The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks.  We actually bought the place off a group of retired Bothan spies, but those guys lived here for a REALLY long time before we got here though and they told us they got it on the cheap after there was a series of grisly Gorn murders committed in the sun room.  Countless lab “accidents”, weapon misfires, prison riots, and demon infestations, have left several stratified layers of previous civilizations beneath the floorboards.  After spending much of our formative years watching and constantly re-watching the Indiana Jones TRILOGY (because as you know, as far as C-Mart is concerned there are only three Indiana Jones movies, that’s it.  No more, only THREE!!!), we feel that we’re pretty much experts in all there is to know about archaeology: punching Nazi’s before they melt, whiskey, chilled monkey brains, and occasionally digging something out of the dirt.  On our most recent expedition to the bowels of the Evil Lair, we’ve managed to turn up some geek artifacts that we think folks will get a kick out of seeing.

Evil Geek Book Report – G.I. Joe: Cobra Vol. 1

My G.I. Joe knowledge and appreciation comes squarely from the 1980’s cartoon and its toy line. They were both a pivotal part of growing up for me. Once I got back into comics and found that new G.I Joe comics existed I felt I owed it to myself to check it out. I haven’t read the original Marvel stuff but I know it’s heralded as one of the best, but I wanted something current and something fresh. Watching the old cartoon now is a bit of a letdown, I wanted G.I. Joe for adults. I looked at what current publisher IDW had to offer and was confused by what seemed like endless crossovers between their 3 main books. I was just about give up when someone recommended starting with Cobra Vol. 1 by Mike Costa. They told me it was self-contained so that’s a good start. Plus, I don’t really care about G.I. Joe, I’m a Cobra man through and through.
